I was recently pointed in the direction of Norwegian Fashion Photographer Solve Sundsbo. I love the composition of his images and the way he masters both colour and the black & White shots. He seems to be very experimental and a lot of his images are quite active and high in energy. Here are 3 shoots I really liked...

2. "Hair Storm" for the Spring/Summer 08 issue of 'Pop' Magazine

I take a lot of photos...a lot... (we are talking tens of thousands on my hard drive!) and I'm always looking for new ways to display them. In the age of the digital sometimes we can forget the simple joy of a tangible hard copy image; that anticipation when you head to the photo store to collect your prints, its always exciting to see your photography work on paper.
I love leaning big frames up against walls, pinning prints to notice-boards or slipping them in the sides of my dressing table mirror, but I get bored easily and always like to change things up. Check out these great ideas I found, that work not only for photos, but invitations, bills, artwork and greeting cards...very inspiring, better get out there and take some new photos to put up!

Designer Stationary brand Flowermill have come up with this great idea called the Sticky Board. Its comes in some funky designs, and you only have to wipe it over every few years to maintain the stick! Perfect for in the kitchen to keep all the important stuff stuck in one place.

TREND ITEM : THE MILITARY JACKET
At the end of summer I love shopping around for a new jacket in anticipation of a cold Winter (even though Brisbane weather always does it's best to stall me). This year I've got my eye out for a military coat à la Balmain's Fall 2009 runway. Fingers crossed March 1 will bring with it some chilly days...
1.Balmain (SS 09 RTW) 2.Celine (SS10 RTW) 3.Balmain (SS 09 RTW) 4. Proenza Schouler (SS10 RTW) 5. Stella McCartney (SS10 RTW) 6. Aquilano.Rimondi (SS10 RTW) 7. Marc Jacobs (SS10 RTW) 8. Michael Kors (Fall2010 RTW) 9. MaxMara (SS10 RTW) 10. MaxMara (SS10 RTW)
If you can't invest in a 5 figure designer jacket just at the moment, don't fret! There are so many great ways to work the 'Military' look this season that won't break the budget. All it takes is some clever shopping and accessorising! So don't be a brand snob and take a look at these finds below (and trust me there is plenty more out there).

supermarkethq.com is a site I stumbled across that sells quirky items straight from the Designers to you! Check out this great tea towel from Showpony, designed by Scottish Emma Henderson. I just wish more of the pieces were shipped to Australia.

For my birthday last week (amongst other things) my sister and I went shopping at Harbour Town on the Gold Coast and I fell in love with a pair of Tony Bianco flats (on sale!). I snapped them up straight away and walked out wearing them. The only bad thing about my new "Suri's" is that Im in danger of walking into something thanks to their distracting bling - so pretty I cant help but stare...I heart these shoes.
